“Unique Surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great 50's atmosphere. Black and white checkered floors, Red vinyl chairs. Sad they took out the soda fountain and turned it into a bar of all things. Food is good and service is great. Brings back many memories at our ages.
Be sure to check out the walls!

“Dog Friendly Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

For those of us who travel with our well behaved dogs, this is a great find. Very dog friendly on the outdoor patio. Nice shade umbrellas, fresh water for our dog, good service, great burgers, and really good pie for dessert. We will be back!

“Nice place for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Enjoyed a very nice and tasty lunch. Husband had chili which was very good and seasoned perfectly (thanks for not making it so darn spicy). I had the Rueben which was plenty big that I shared it with my husband. I would make a return visit when we are in the area.
